I will try that my average is like 240

Increase Lantus by 2 units and see how that goes for a few days. If still running higher than you want increase by 2 again.

You're welcome :) If it goes wacky, contact your doctor. Sometimes you can fax or email your readings instead an office visit.

I understand that but sometimes you just have to do it, especially if the pain is effecting your everyday living.

Do you count carbs? If your levels are high, remember you need to look at the meal beforehand

I've just started on a pump last week and I'll be testing my basal rate by skipping meals to see if my levels stay even or go up /down. Might be something to look at if you can.
